Wild Birds: Goldfinch

Linking to Wild Birds with Stewart.

I've been away from blog land for a few weeks. My Mom had to be hospitalized with fluid around her heart and lungs. She is in good spirits and again doing her daily routines. Further testing will be done in the next few weeks but we are optimistic all things will turn out well.
Then, Hubby and I visited our two oldest Granddaughters. Little Lucy turned FIVE! I hardly know where the time has gone. I haven't posted photos of them in awhile so here is a couple from party day.
Lucy on party day. She loves Minnie Mouse so that was the theme for the day. Such a joyous smile!

Lily giving her some sisterly love. This just melts my heart!

i knew you were gone--since I hadn't seen you around in awhile.. So sorry to hear about your Mom--but glad she is better.

You probably don't know that I had surgery last Thursday --and am still recovering.. It went well---but I'm still having some problems. Need to remind myself that I'm no spring chicken these days!!! ha

Your granddaughters are beautiful... Happy Belated Mother's Day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sorry to hear about your Mom Carletta, wishing her a very speedy recovery. Your grandchildren are adorable. I have a little great-niece who loves Mickey. Also a great quote to go with that sweet bird.

Always miss ya' when you're gone. Sorry about your mom and glad she's doing better. And wow, it doesn't seem possible that I've been reading about your adorable grandgirls for more than five years. I can't believe where the time has gone with my own either!

Lovely bird, lovely girls, lovely post.

Well I've been absent from viewing blogs for about a week so this was news to me. I hope your mom is doing much better and you as well. Your little granddaughter is a cutie.

Rose said...

So sorry that your mom is having problems.

Your girls are adorable. Can you believe how big they are all getting? Lucy and Lorelei are so close in age...I hate to think that next year she will be in school full time.
